Hey. I am having a hard time solving this problem.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(x^2)y' + 2xy = 5y^4

I get as far as simplifying to

y' = [(5y^4)/(x^2)] - 2y/x

Then use v: y/x and y: vx & y': v'x + v

And get

v'x + v = [5(v^4)(x^2)] - 2v

And then I get lost. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
